COOPERSTOWN, NY - The village of Cooperstown is one step closer to solving the parking problem on lower Pioneer Street.
Following a $1.2 Million renovation project to replace 100-year -old water and sewer lines, repave the street, and install new curbs, the village proposed implementing diagonal parking.
Much to the dismay of the residents on Pioneer Street.
At Monday's village board meeting, a proposal to return to parallel parking with a 3-hour time limit during the summer was brought before the board.
A decision that seems to please residents like Alan Leist, who live on Pioneer Street.
“I think we’re making progress. I was impressed with the fact that the compromise plan was offered, and I certainly hope the village board of trustees cedes to the wishes of most of the members on the street and adopts this compromise plan."
The parallel parking proposal on Pioneer Street is not official just yet.
There will be a public hearing regarding the matter on September 20th.
